Published 1971

Subject: "I have to go home now"
Not a bad exploration about how to convince young people today (read, the 70's) that Drugs Are Bad. We see several methods, cop comes to a classroom, former addict comes to the classroom, community advocate comes to a classroom and so on. All three of these are hilarious in their own way. The cop looks to be snooping out drug fiends by asking pointed questions ("Do you know what kind of pills these are?") The ex-junkie rambles on about all the drugs she's had, and seems to still be hooked on SOMETHING, while the advocate just seems upset at the world and bitches everyone out. In the end, a nice organic way is thought up, let the students talk it up themselves is suggested, and for some odd reason, that sounds like the most sane.
Somewhat odd camerawork here and there, and the sound editing could have been improved. Did we really need to hear the teacher screw up the policeman's name? And yes, the ex-junkie really needs to go home now.
